There is a good chance you will be at the business end of a title fight in Mexico City, so this F1 22 Mexico setup is a must!

The awesome Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is a stellar track that tests nerve and technique.

With its massive pit straight, sharp chicanes, sweeping esses, and tight stadium section there is no track quite like the home of the Mexican GP.

That makes getting a setup for it pretty tricky. Low downforce setups can gain you time on the straight but you’ll struggle mightily through the second half of the lap.

This one is a nice compromise that will keep you speedy, stable, and look after the tyres.

Aerodynamics

We’ve gone for a low-wing setup, but not so low that you will lose the car in the corners!

The 15-17 wings will provide plenty of top-end speed into turn 1. We can get enough performance from the rest of the setup to keep the car competitive elsewhere.

Transmission

This part of the setup is all about getting the 1,000 bhp from the power unit, through the rear wheels, and into the asphalt.

We’ve gone for 90% on-throttle differential to give you more stability on corner exit and better traction.

The 50% off-throttle differential provides extra rotation into corners that we are forgoing with skinnier wings.

Suspension geometry

The meta for suspension geometry hasn’t changed much this year.

We’ve gone with -2.50 for the front camber and -1.00 on the rear. For toe its 0.05 on the front and 0.20 on the rear.

Suspension

This part of the setup can be highly dependent on driving style, but these settings will provide a very reliable car for you to race with.

The 7-1 suspension and 7-1 anti-roll bars give you a responsive car that is super-planted through the esses. It’s not got the high-level rear rotation of an esports setup but that just makes it more controllable for us mortals!

The 6-7 ride height lets you maximise the track width and ride kerbs through the esses, gaining lap time.

Brakes

Stopping power is a must, but lockups are devastating around this track.

We’ve gone with 100% brake pressure and 50% brake bias to provide maximum stopping power for the race.

If you do find you are locking up in practice then drop the brake pressure by a few clicks, don’t move the bias.

Tyres

The 18” Pirelli rubber is new for F1 22.

We have had success with 23.5 psi on the front tyres and 23.0 psi on the rears. Wear is pretty good with this setup but if you are finding the rears are going off a bit too quickly then either drop the on-throttle differential or lower the rear tyre pressures.
